The Good Fight

HARRASED

 Fight the good fight for the true faith. 1Timothy 6:12 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

We are in a daily battle with a sneaky, dirty filthy strong foe. His name is satan and his goal is the complete and total destruction of every Christian he can. He is smarter that us and stronger than us.

Our three weapons that defeat him are to be constantly by our side.

The first is our Bibles. We are to ask Jehovah to speak with us through it to bless us with battle verses to defeat our foe. After all, is that not how Jesus defeated satan in the wilderness. Are we not to emulate our King? So, if He defeated the devil with the Holy Bible should we not do so as well.

The second weapon is prayer. After all, how can satan attack us if we are talking with our Heavenly Father? When he attacks we go to Him and satan runs like a scared dog.

The third is obedience. Who knows better how to defeat satan than Jehovah? So who better to listen to to defeat satan than the eternal victorious One?

Every Christian is involved in a daily battle with no holds barred. Our victory comes from team work. The Holy Spirit and the Christian united is an unbeatable force to be reckoned with. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Gibbor Milchamah (Psalms 24:8) – The LORD Mighty In Battle for blessing me with the unbeatable weapons necessary to defeat my worst and most dangerous foe who is always lurking to seek the right moment to attack me. These weapons always guarantee me success. I applaud You in the name of my victorious King Jesus Christ. Amen

May the light of Christs love shine brightly in your heart today and every day Joseph a son of Jehovah

He Always Wins.

WHEN SATAN ATTACKS

The Lord says I will fight those who fight you Isaiah 49:25 Holy Bible, New Living Translation

This is not just a promise to an ancient nation but unto every child that belongs unto Jehovah.

One thing I have noticed over the decades not just in my own life but also in the lives of our brothers and sisters in Christ is that it always seems like the wicked are winning when in a battle against us. Then just as it looks like certain defeat, Jehovah comes into the fray and we are delivered.

Oh, that does not mean we will go without our battle scars, but they are used to teach us and to strengthen us.

Sometimes it looks like the enemy has won and we move on in life but there comes a time when we encounter our foe again, it may be a few days later, it may be a few decades later but it is shocking to see how much of their lives has been destroyed through their wicked actions. I stand in awe and terror when witnessing Jehovahs hand of justice upon the wicked.              

Jehovah fights fair and He always wins. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Gador Milchamah (The Lord is Mighty in Battle) for being the undefeatable protector of Your loving adoring child. Thank you for smack downing satan and his minions when they attack me. Thank you for turning my foes weapons against them to cause their self destruction. I praise You in the name of the conquering King of whom I am His worshiping servant King Jesus Christ. Amen

May you be blessed with peace and joy every day.

Fights Against It.

 

                                                                 

So now [if that is the case, then] it is no longer I who do it [the disobedient thing which I despise], but the sin [nature] which lives in me.  For I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my flesh [my human nature, my worldliness—my sinful capacity]. For the willingness [to do good] is present in me, but the doing of good is not. For the good that I want to do, I do not do, but I practice the very evil that I do not want. Romans 7:17-19 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

It is a constant battle.

Although we are Christians in spirit we are still flesh and blood with fleshly desires that fight against the spirit.

How many times have we spoken foolishly with words that hurt others (whether intentional or unintentional)?

How many times have we looked at someone and wanted to jump in the sack with them (yes women do it as well as men)?

How many times have we looked down on another because of their race, nationality or social standing?

These things are said to be natural and they are, for the flesh.

But as Christians we are to live super natural lives.

We cannot succeed on our own initiative.

Thankfully we have the ultimate superpower readily available to assist us. His name is the Holy Spirit.

I cannot count the number of times I call upon Him every day. It is so reassuring to know He is always there and deeply gratifying as well. He has prevented numerous disasters in my daily life.

Make a habit of always opening your mouth to Him first before you open it to someone else Always make a habit of running to Him before you run to your fleshly desires first. It prevents untold painful catastrophes

The true Christian hates sin, flees from it, fights against it, considers it his greatest plague, resents the burden of its presence, mourns when he falls under its influence, and longs to be completely delivered from it.”J.C. Ryle

Prayer: Please JehovahMa’oz (Lord my Fortress) bless me to always be able to take shelter in Your strong fortress when the enemy comes attacking my mine with destructive thought which are repugnant unto both You and I. Please bless me with the proper weapons to defeat the wicked foe when He comes slithering into my daily life so as to remain a righteous child of Yours. I humbly request this in the name of He who used Your Holy Scripture to defeat His foe in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen.

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Let Them Not Rule.

 Also keep back Your servant from presumptuous (deliberate, willful) sins;
Let them not rule
and have control over me. Psalm 19:13 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There are certain inherited sins in us all as well are a fallen race.

The only way to conquer them is through the submission unto the all power of the Holy Spirit.

I know, that is the only way I beat alcoholism.

Have you ever seen a row between two folks and just before it comes to blows a friend steps between one of them and prevents him from getting into a fight? He does so because he knows the other man or woman will beat the snot out of his or her friend. The ringer is laughing at the sucker and egging them on to fight just for the perverted pleasure of fighting.

That is what the man in the above verse is saying.

Satan knows our weakness and will work on it and present it to us in an appealing manner. The temptation is too strong for us. That is when we need to call in the supreme Superman to save the day. His name is The Holy Spirit.

There have been numerous times the temptation was so great I thought my head was going to explode. I called out in desperation :” Come now Holy Spirit, please hurry or all is lost.” It may sound incredible but it is true, the temptation was immediately taken from me.

Satan drools when he sees foolish Christians think they are strong enough to resist him. They are the easiest prey.

That enemy of yours, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion [fiercely hungry], seeking someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Without the Holy Spirits help we all fall away from Jehovah and towards satan. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense) for being my defense against a wily foe who can easily destroy me without You but cannot touch me with You. I give thanks in the name of He who defeated satan on the cross and at the resurrection Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Like Circles in the Water.

                                                      

Every day he multiplies lies and violence. Hosea 12:1 Holy Bible Amplified Version

I have met many that when they were young they had so much going for them. But, they started walking in darkness in a few small things and a little at a time the darkness in them grew larger and larger. At a certain point in time the darkness grew stronger and more powerful until it destroyed them. Now they are pitiful creatures with no hope and no life. They threw it all away.

Every sin starts out small but must be dealt with ruthlessly and immediately or else it spreads like cancer and other sins come in to give it more power over your life.

Do not forget, most forest fires start out as small embers from a campfire or a cigarette but can and do cause massive destruction.

“Sins are like circles in the water when a stone is thrown into it; one produces another. When anger was in Cain’s heart, murder was not far off.” — Philip Henry

Prayer: Please Jehovah Hoshe’ah ( The Lord Saves ) continue to send the Holy Spirit to protect me from fleshly desires. And, to convict me when I surrender to them as well as provide a means of conquering them through Your mighty power. I humbly request this in the name of He who defeats all demons Jesus Christ. Amen.

Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing

Outside of Christ.

                                         

Be strong in the Lord [draw your strength from Him and be empowered through your union with Him] and in the power of His [boundless] might. Ephesians 6:10 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When we are outside of Christ we are easy pickings for the devil and his minions. Their greatest joy is bringing nothing but sorrow, pain, anger and hatred. He is great at nurturing guilt complexes, jealousy, envy, backbiting, selfishness and a whole litany of other mental problems which slowly destroys all joy from our lives.

As well we are susceptible to being enslaved by society. We fall for the enslavement of trying to keep up with the Jones and stupidly going so deep into debt it will never be paid off. And, if any little catastrophe occurs like a raise in interest rates, a recession ( where you lose your job) the result is that all of your hard work is for naught because you can no longer afford to pay for all your toys and house and lose everything. You are bitter and deeply depressed. We fall for the con men and women that deceive us into foolishly believing that sex out of marriage is fun, drugs are fun, and alcohol abuse is fun ( just look at the rubbish on TV, in the movies and listen to the complete garbage that passes off as music to confirm this). This destroys our minds bodies and spirit over time and leaves us as an empty shell of a being in a total miserable state.

On the flip side when we are in Christ, He blesses us with meaning in life, to enjoy and nurture a loving relationship with Him and a Divine purpose in life, to be obedient servants of our Heavenly King. We never ask why we are here nor what is the meaning of life because our Heavenly King has revealed it to us. When we have this, we have complete strength and wisdom by the Holy Spirit to expose and resist the wicked demons and the foolishness of worldliness. We are blessed with complete fullness of life, both now and eternally.

Outside of Christ, I am weak; in Christ, I am strong.” Watchmen Nee

It is in the storms that Jehovah reveals the most of His love, strength, wisdom and peace that He abundantly blesses us with the most. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) for blessing me with Divine wisdom and strength to know the devils wiles and blessing with with the strength and wisdom in the proper manner in which to defeat the. I praise You in the name of He who had the strength to defeat the devil in the wilderness Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

With Confidence and Without Fear.

 

Therefore let us [with privilege] approach the throne of grace [that is, the throne of God’s gracious favor] with confidence and without fear, so that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find [His amazing] grace to help in time of need [an appropriate blessing, coming just at the right moment]. Hebrews 4:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

We approach Jehovahs throne with confidence not arrogance because we believe it is by Christs blood that we have the gift of grace which is forgiveness, that our filth is washed clean when we repent.

We also need to acknowledge our weaknesses and humbly, sincerely request The Holy Spirits assistance and strength to conquer them.

Jehovah will allow us to wrestle with our weaknesses until the point where they are going to defeat us and then come in like the cavalry. This is to teach us that we are too weak and in need of His Divine assistance. This teaches us to not only depend upon Him but to be grateful and respectful unto Him.

The end result is a deep love and admiration towards Him. Knowing our weaknesses we need to be aware of them and our circumstances.

We need to be aware of the danger of entering into a forbidden area because it will place us in the temptation zone which will overpower our weaknesses.

We need to discipline ourselves to avoid these places like the plague.

Discipline is incorporating what we have learned in the Holy Spirits Divine school into our daily lives. Joseph son of Jehovah.

So a alcoholic, when they become dry, need to be aware of certain streets that they cannot walk down because there is a liquor store there or a bar which will draw them into temptation.

Keep actively watching and praying that you may not come into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the body is weak. Matthew 26:41 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) bless me with Your Divine strength and wisdom to be able to conquer my weaknesses so as to not shame You the One I love the most. I humbly ask this in the name of He whose strength defeated satan on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
